The journey from concept to creation is challenging, especially when coordinating with artisans from a different country. For example, during monsoon season and during cold damp days, we are forced to put our production process on hold, because our fabrics rely heavily on good weather. After many sleepless nights and feeling like I am literally putting my sweat and tears into my work, I have learned some valuable lessons.
